  1. How good a marker is insulin level for insulin resistance ?

    Article - En anglais

    Epidemiologic studies have correlated fasting and postload insulin levels with the risk of coronary heart disease, assuming that insulin levels are reliable markers of insulin resistance.

    However, this assumption has not been systematically studied.

    The author measured insulin response to an oral glucose load and quantitated insulin resistance using the euglycemic hyperinsulinemic clamp technique to evaluate the correlation between insulin level and the degree of insulin resistance in individuals with varying degrees of glucose tolerance.

    Subjects were randomly selected from previous population studies done in 1987-1989 at the Department of Medicine of the University of Kuopio in east Finland.
